Default Re: Axle suggestions?

Glad to hear you've had good luck with these motors.

Now that i know some 'high torque' RC motors do fit, i probably should go back through my first truck build to see if i kept any notes on gear ratios, final drives, gear inches. Ya know, boring stuff.
Luckily i didn't save any of that!

Jungle website sells those 370 gearboxes in several flavors: 3, 6, 10, 18, 23, 30, 40, 66, 90,160, 210 RPM

Then there's a questionable review for those with chart they posted as stolen from ebay, claims gear ratios: 40, 65, 160, 200, 260, 340, 600,1000 (xx to 1)
Sketchy chart 90rpm = 65:1
Then i'm thinking something 200:1 (30), 260:1 (23), or 340:1 (18) sound much more likely numbers for dragging 10+ lbs of truck, some dirt, maybe another truck

So far all i do know for sure is that 90 rpm + Redcat motor = Too fast.
Got some 12v at 23 RPM (260:1) units on the way. Less than 1/3 speed of the first try, and the reduction ratio seems more like a crawler. Hopefully it can get a machine out of its own way in a realistic manner.
What do ya mean "Cars are neither Trucks or Construction"?
It's still scale, and i play fairly well with others, most of the time...
